To prevent heat-related illness, the Oakland County Health Division offers the following suggestions:

Monitor high-risk individuals for signs of heat-related illness.

Visit older neighbors and family members at least twice a day to make sure they are safe.

Watch for signs of heat stroke or heat exhaustion. Wear loose-fitting, lightweight and light-colored clothing.

Limit vigorous activity during hot, humid weather. Stay indoors and exercise in air-conditioned areas such as malls.

Do not leave infants, pets, or elderly people in parked cars.

Drink plenty of water, more than needed to satisfy thirst.

Drink before thirst sets in. If exercising, drink two to four cups of water every hour.

Limit drinks that can cause dehydration such as coffee and soda.

Avoid alcohol.

Utilize protection from the sun: wear sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and sunscreen with a SPF of 15 or higher.
